GamesRadar's 3rd annual 24 hour marathon

Beginning at 5pm PST, the GamesRadar team will hunker down for 24 straight hours of online gaming bliss. Check the schedule to see what we're playing (and when), and by all means, hop on in and play along with us! We'll also kick off the live stream more or less at 5pm sharp, so even if you can't get in a match, you can watch us slowly lose our minds as the Earth completes an entire rotation. Should you need even more ways to sate your voyeuristic needs, keep an eye our our YouTube and Twitter pages, or chat with us in the JustinTV stream.

    I am sad to say I never got a chance to play with you guys. The timing never lined up. But I was able to watch a good chunk of the live stream. At least ten hours, at most 14 (I was drifting in and out Friday night, give me a break I was up at 4am Pacific time!) The previous years I was able to get into some games. But from all I watched I would like to congratulate you guys on a successful marathon and a salute to next year where I will make sure I get at least one game in!
